The Magic Hour by Ian Beck

This one touched my imagination and was great fun to read.  Two sisters are always on the go.  When one climbs a tree she thinks she sees a fairy in her neighbor's garden.  Unfortunately that's when her mother calls her in to eat.

Tate books sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now.

When the younger sister tells her older sister about it, they decide to sneak at at night and investigate.  Instead of fairies, they find their neighbors carrying lanterns.  When they ask the girls why they are there, the little one says she thought she saw fairies.  They agree it's a magic time of night and tell them they are painting.  They learn to see how colors change with dusk and they can feel the magic, too.

Do the colors and shadows outdoors seem like magic to you?  Try visiting a wooded area, it's easy to feel it there..
